"Living in southern Arizona I too use scarves and hats. I hate wigs. Too hot and uncomfortable. Thanks for the scarf tutorial!"

Beach meditation

Feeling so grateful to be immersed in nature, to be grounded by the earth, sky and sea and to feel completely at home in my own body. I may not have much hair but right now I'm feeling pretty calm about it. :)

Advantages of Alopecia

Seems like an oxymoron, right? How could there be advantages to this condition? It makes us alopecians feel ashamed. It makes us feel different. And it makes us live in fear, a lot of the time...especially if we're still at the stage of covering our patches with stick-on pieces or wearing a full wig.It can even lead to us feeling anxious and depressed – something I have a lot…See More

"Just to add my two cents' worth...I first developed alopecia (areata) when I was 10 and so also spent a lot of my teenage life trying to hide it. Obviously, it's different with your daughter experiencing universalis as it'll be…"

Emma replied to Carla's discussion Wig During Cold Weather
"Hi Carla, Coming from Ireland, I've had very similar problems! I recommend using a headband, one of the stretchy ones that cover your ears. Hats don't always work as you can get that 'helmet hair' look and not the best for say,…"

Emma replied to Jimmyh234's discussion Girlfriend won’t tell me she has alopecia
"Hi Jimmy, I'm so sorry to hear about what sounds like a really difficult situation. I've had alopecia for most of my life and have been with my boyfriend for 9 years...half of which have involved me being almost bald. In fact, he was…"

About Me:
I'm 32 and I've had alopecia on and off since I was 10 years old.

It got a lot worse in my mid-20s, so I decided to stop wearing uncomfortable wigs (which were actually making me feel more anxious).

Instead, I shaved my head and started writing about my experiences as an alopecian. I now feel a lot more comfortable in my baldness and 90% of the time the reactions I get are great! As for the others, I try not to let them get to me...

I want to share my story for people struggling with self-esteem issues because of hair loss – and to be inspired by their stories, too!

Luckily, alopecia is becoming more of a familiar term nowadays and there are more options out there to turn to for support. But I want to grow the community further – that's why I'm in the process of setting up my personal site, which should be ready soon.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Ways to brave the bald... 

I've had alopecia areata on and off since I was 10 and have been wig-free for about 5 years. One day, I decided I was sick of wearing an uncomfortable wig and of worrying about it every time a gust of wind came, so I asked my boyfriend to shave my head.…

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil588@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Stella.
